I have a high density single-family residential site with egress vehicle parking constraints. The project is being designed with motor courts, in which, vehicles exiting thier property will either back-up a minimum of 60 feet or perform a 90 degree turn into a neighboring driveway to exit their property. I checked with a traffic engineer to see if any traffic safety guidelines restrict the distance of driving in reverse to exit a private driveway. Could not find any. Anyone out there have any thoughts??

Main issues:

Is there a maximum distance a vehicle can travel in reverse to exit a driveway??

Any encroachment issues with a 90 degree turn into another property to back-up out of a residential neighborhood??

Thanks

Jim
